[webkit-dev] Resource Cache in WebKit2

Hi All,

I have been looking at the WebKit2 code in the latest git version to
get more understanding about it. As fas as I could understand, the
Resource Cache is still managed by each WebProcess individually (and
the sample application is using the DOCUMENT_VIEWER cache model for
now) and there is no concept of having a 'shared' resource cache among
multiple web processes - is that correct. If so, then there will be no
resue of the cache in one WebProcess even if the same page is open in
another WebProcess (both communicating to a common UI Process).
Also, are there any immediate plans to implement a shared cache model
(common to all the WebProcess) ?

Thanks in advance for your help !
